NYC Guide: The Unofficial “Little Britain”
The campaign for the official designation and street renaming of Little Britain may have been killed by Community Board 2, but the neighborhood residents behind the push still maintain a strong presence in this small stretch of the West Village. The campaign sought to have the area encompassing West 11th Street and West 14th Street between 6th Avenue and Washington Street become the official overseas home of the city’s British contingency. Until the campaign is revived be sure to check out these Brit-centric spots for your own taste of England in NYC.
